  1. A Handy Tool For Wet Well Maintenance: Cutting Through The FOG

    Blame our fast food diets or restaurants’ negligence for what’s going down the drain. Whatever the cause, fats, oil, and grease (FOG) accumulation has become a pervasive problem for wastewater treat­ment plant collection systems.

  2. MetroH20: Education For The Industry

    Singer Valve manufactures automatic control valves for municipal water systems — everything from pressure reducing, pressure relief, anywhere where you’d need to control the water running through the line.

  3. Advanced Metering Poised To Become Utilities’ New Best Friend

    Utility workers will remember a time when meter reading meant driving to a customer’s house, walking up to their meter and manually recording water use. Those days were replaced with the now standard use of walk- and drive-by meter readers. That standard, like its predecessor, is poised to be supplanted by the next wave in metering technology.

  4. AMERICAN Ingenuity Delivers Massive Pipe, Fittings To Replenish Shrinking Water Supplies In Arkansas

    The Mississippi River Valley Alluvial Aquifer — a primary water source for small towns, rural water systems and farm irrigation in eastern Arkansas — is running dry. According to the Army Corps of Engineers’ website, a project study in the mid-1980s pointed out, and further studies have since shown, the region’s groundwater resources are rapidly shrinking.

  5. How To Evolve With SCADA

    Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems are the digital pulse of water and wastewater treatment plants. Serving as the information hub, SCADA makes the most of the day’s cutting-edge technology and in turn uses it to make the most of the plant’s operations. But how to keep up with a system that evolves as quickly as the greatest minds in the field will allow?

  6. Dominion Salt Capacity Expansion

    Demand for Dominion Salt’s high-purity, sodium chloride products for their rapidly growing markets was pushing production at full capacity around the clock, only stopping for planned maintenance shutdowns.

  7. Sunlight-Blocking Covers Control Algae, Reduce Operational Costs At California Utility

    ​The Santa Clara Valley Water District (the District) manages an integrated water resources system that includes the supply of clean, safe water, flood protection, and stewardship of streams on behalf of Santa Clara County's 1.8 million residents. The district effectively manages 10 dams and surface water reservoirs, three water treatment plants, an advanced recycled water purification center, a state-of-the-art water quality laboratory, nearly 400 acres (162 hectares) of groundwater recharge ponds, and more than 275 miles (443 km) of streams.

  8. Corrosive-Resistant Biogas Blower Lessens Anaerobic Digester’s Maintenance Costs

    If your plant is using anaerobic digestion to create biogas as an energy source, you may want to consider the blower being used to move the biogas from the digester to its point of use.

  9. SCADA Success Rests On Collaboration

    SCADA implementation or enhancement is a collaborative process. One of the hardest challenges is keeping up-to-date on the latest features available and determining whether or not the new benefits offset the cost of implementation.

  10. How The GE Water Acquisition Bolsters SUEZ’s Resource Recovery Revolution

    One of the more eye-catching events in the water and wastewater industry in 2017 was the acquisition of the GE Water business by SUEZ.  Water Talk caught up to Heiner Markhoff, the new CEO of  SUEZ  Water Technologies and Solutions, to discuss the merger.
